1year!

Well, I did it. I made it a whole year

It has been a hell of a ride lol. I've had a lot of ups and downs, but I can honestly say it was all worth it. I am so happy right now to be able to say I accomplished this. Maybe the first real accomplishment I've ever had in my life, if I'm honest. The emotions I feel are just extremely hard for me to put into words, but I had to share this moment with people who I'm sure can understand how big of a deal this is to me. I want to thank everyone on SR. I am not all that active, but it has helped me so much just knowing I have this place and reading all the helpful things you guys say. So thanks, and I hope to have many more sober years ahead!

Congratulations!!!

When I got my 1 year chip, I went bounding up to my sponsor saying "Look!!!" and held up the chip.

Eddie, always the one to take the wind out of my sails, said, "Some people go thier entire lives without drinkin' and druggin' and you want a friggin' medal?!? Go help someone!"

After letting me stew on that for a little while, he came up to me and said, "Congratulations! You've done a lot of hard work, keep it up. . . NOW GO EFFING HELP SOMEONE!'

Man I love that guy!

That is a miracle, congrats!!

My sponsor told me when I got my 1 yr coin "The first year is a gift, now the work begins" I was so pissed at him. I worked so hard for that first year. so hard. It felt as though it was the first true accomplishment in my life. Enjoy it, it is an amazing gift!
